The Social Sci-Fi Podcast

Nov 22, 2019

Hello again, and welcome to another episode of Social Sci-fi.  For this special episode, I'm not talking about a show or a movie. Instead, I'm talking about a little convention I was able to help out with this past October, called VoltCon. As I was there, I decided to break out the podcast equipment and interview guests, vendors, and attendees. I was having such a great time, and I was hearing all kinds of wonderful feedback, so I wanted to talk to people about the con. Then, when the show was over and the dust settled a bit, I invited the organizers behind this local show over to the Geek Cave Studios for a full interview about the process of putting on a "small but mighty" convention celebrating the 35th birthday of Voltron.

This is part one of a two part special. In the first part, I interview Kevin, Patrick, and Savannah, who were the crew behind the show. In addition, I have teasers of my talks with a show sponsor, the person behind the art used for the convention, and a couple of the guests. Next Friday, November 29th, I'll have the full interviews with everyone I interviewed at the show, from vendors to attendees, to get their thoughts on this first-year convention.

So, sit back, and let us fill your ears for the next fifty two and a half minutes with talk of giant robots!
